This song was composed and recorded for one of my solo projects called “Ninth Project”.
(I had nine different projects at the time, this was number 9).
I recorded enough material for an album, and contacted producer Yngve Sætre, to help me finish up the songs, in his “Duper studios”.
While we were working on the mixes, my main band “Woo” broke up, and I decided to make a band of this “Ninth Project”, which I called “Ninth”.
The vocals were re-recorded with the new “Ninth” vocalist Stein Hevrøy, and sent to be mixed in LA by producer/mixer Andrew Scheps.
After a while, Stein quit the band and the vocals had to be re-recorded again, this time by Per-Helge Lande. The song was again sent to LA, and mixed by Andrew.
After a while Per-Helge quit as well. I tried 4-5 different singers after that, before I shut down the band.
So, it feels kind of good to bring these songs “home” in this project as I was originally singing them myself when I recorded them.
It is also one of the main reasons for doing this project in the first place.
So many songs, carefully made (through blood sweat and tears) for bands that, soon enough, broke up. Which is quite normal in this business.
Anyway, it felt right to release them under my own name and with my own voice. That way, the music will not again be disrupted by singers with cold feet.
When that is said, I‘ve always loved the social side of music most. It’s what drove me.
I never really wanted to do anything solo. I love the camaraderie, laughs, arguments, achievements and support you get with a team, or simply from a bunch of good friends.
Life’s about people being together, in the end. Friendship is more important than musicality, even in the music business.
